Fic: Thanks to Spike

I enjoyed visualising our pair trapped in the deeply weird Britain of 2020. This week cultural clashes work both ways, and for the last Free-For-All posting day of this round of seasonal_spuffy I offer a Thanksgiving companion piece to Fireworks

Thanks are due to all the mods (including your humble servant for a while) and contributors who have kept this wonderful event going for fifteen years, and to the lurkers readers and viewers who have made it worthwhile. May you have lots to be actively thankful for in the year to come, and a year containing far fewer apocalypses than 2020 has offered so far.

Fic: Nothing Is Finished, Chapter 5

This is the last chapter! Please do read Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 before starting this one. I’ll also put the whole thing up on AO3 on (probably) Monday.

Title: Nothing Is Finished, Chapter 5
Author: stuffnonsense / stuffandnonsense
Era/season/setting: Post-Series
Rating: Mature

In Ripples on a Hellmouth, Buffy went back in time seven times to fix her past and stop the world from ending. Each trip back showed her a different ‘present’, until by the end she barely recognised it. But she still ended up with almost everything she’d ever hoped for in a happily ever after.

At least part of that was because of Spike. Just … not the same Spike she found herself married to in 2023. It was a different version of Spike – one who Buffy met in passing in one of her intermediate futures – who made just the one time jump, back seven years in time-travelling-Buffy’s timeline to when Buffy’s husband died.

This is his story.

Fic: Nothing Is Finished, Chapter 4

Fic: Sleeping Beauty Awakes

Title: Sleeping Beauty Awakes
Author: titti
Character: Buffy/Spike, Willow/Kennedy
Era: Post-series
Rating: G
Summary: After a fight with a demon, Spike falls asleep and doesn’t wake up. Willow, Kennedy, Dawn and Buffy go to LA to help.
Notes: Written for Fall 2020 round of seasonal spuffy will run on LiveJournal and Dreamwidth. Theme: Fairy Tales Retold

I don’t read the comics and I don’t know what happened in the post series-comics for Angel and/or Buffy. If you consider the comics canon, then it’s AU since I’m making it all up.

Buffy, Spike, and the Witch of the Acheron River (1/1)

Title: Buffy, Spike, and the Witch of the Acheron River
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I own nothing. Joss owns all.
Summary: A sort of fairy tale. Buffy receives word that someone she knows has come to the meadows across the river. Written for the 15th anniversary of Seasonal Spuffy and for all the lovely people who make fandom a wonderful place to be. (This was written in about three days after my son went to bed so any mistakes are all mine.)

Fic: Nothing Is Finished, Chapter 2

For those of you that remember, I had intended to start posting this story back in May, but due to catching Covid, I was delayed. So I only ended up posting the first chapter, which could sort of stand alone as-was. I have since caught up with my writing, so am now launching the rest of the story, starting with Chapter 2! You can either read Chapter 1 as originally posted in seasonal_spuffy here, or the (slightly) updated version on AO3 here. I do recommend reading it somewhere, because chapter 2 does follow on directly.

Warnings: There is some Spike/Other in this chapter, but it’s brief and is not carried over at all into the rest of the story.

Fic: Fireworks

I volunteered for today because it is a date with meaning over here in England. Poor old Guy Fawkes; sometimes you can’t help but feel his heart was in the right place. And this year it’s the day my country goes back into lockdown while across the Atlantic big decisions have still not been finalised.

This story is set now. Spike and Buffy have settled down, and moved relatively recently to England, only to be hit hard by the mess that is 2020. IOW it’s a bit of fluff.

Rating: R for implied sexytimes.

Fic: Ripples on a Hellmouth – Teaser for the Sequel

Title: Teaser for the Sequel
Author: stuffandnonsense (stuffnonsense)
Era/Season/Setting: Post-Series
Rating: PG
Warning: Spike/Other (exactly as much as there was in Ripples, possibly very slightly less)

Author’s Note: This is the kicking off point for another story, but that won’t come out for a while yet (I had Covid, it slowed everything up). However, on its own it is a sequel of sorts for Ripples on a Hellmouth: re-imagining the chapter ‘Four‘ from Spike’s perspective. You may want to read Ripples (or at least ‘Four’) first, but this shouldn’t be totally unreadable if you don’t want to.

Fic: Make Up

Title: Make Up

Author:​ Fancyflautist

Setting: post-series

Rating: PG-13

A/N: I’m already committed to posting one fic a day up until Christmas on my own journal, so I figured I’d just post this one here for the event and link it on mine instead! This is lightly inspired by an Ariana Grande song called Make Up, and also the Buffyverse Bingo prompt “Seeing Red” which I wanted to take in a different direction than just writing around the episode.

Also there’s an AO3 tag called “no beta we die like men” and I feel like that fits this situation. Please let me know any mistakes you find so I can correct ’em.
